How To Make Mimosas in a Pitcher Easily

If we’re honest, the best part about any brunch-related activity is the mimosas. Mimosas are one of the best drinks for brunch because of how easy it is to customize the flavors. There is nothing quite like enjoying a delicious, boozy beverage on a lazy morning with friends. Brunch is the perfect time and place to bring out the mimosas and the pancakes. 

If you were put in charge of the next brunch, it can feel like a lot. Where do you start? How can you serve that many people all at once? What cup do you serve mimosas in? Thankfully, we have some easy tips and tricks to help you nail the next brunch. 

One of the best ways to ease up the brunch planning is to go ahead and make your mimosas in a big batch. There are many different ways to go about this, but we recommend making your mimosas in pitchers, so they’re ready to serve for the brunch festivities. 

Making your mimosas in a pitcher is the perfect way to bring bottomless mimosas right to your home. Here’s how it’s done. 

Mimosa Making Tips 

Before you can put your mimosas into a glass pitcher, you have to put them together. No matter the flavor profile you choose, there are a few things that you should keep in mind to create the perfect mimosa

Use Fresh-Squeezed Juice

Using fresh-squeezed orange juice really can make a difference in your mimosa. There is nothing wrong with using store-bought juice, but there is nothing quite like fresh-squeezed. If you can do it, you and your guests will love the fresh flavors. 

Use a Good Champagne

A good Champagne doesn't have to be an expensive one. There are tons of affordable options for quality Champagnes and sparkling wines that won’t break the bank. 

We recommend looking for a dry Champagne to help balance out the sweetness from the juice to create a wonderfully tart drink. 

Refrigerate Your Mimosas

Seems pretty straightforward, but this step is often missed. Making sure that all the ingredients are cold can help ensure a higher quality end product. It may even help to chill the glasses before serving. 

Don’t Stir Your Mimosas

There is no need to stir your delicious mimosas! Let the bubbles do their job. All you have to do is enjoy it. 

Don’t Let the Mimosas Sit

Like most drinks, when left out, the flavors and textures can go flat. This is the last thing you want when making mimosas when the bubbles are the best part. Serve your mimosas immediately if you want the best experience. 

There really is no wrong way to make a mimosa, thankfully. These are just some helpful tips to get the ball rolling. 

Some people like to change up the sparkling wine to juice ratio, and some prefer to keep things classic. Regardless of how you make them, mimosas are one of the easiest recipes to get creative with. 

Easiest Mimosa Recipe

Mimosas are easy enough to make, especially for bigger events. Whether you decide to keep it classic with orange juice and Champagne or experiment with different juices and wines, this basic recipe is the easiest to make in a big batch for your next bottomless brunch. Cheers! 

This recipe can be made in minutes and only has three ingredients that you can easily swap out for different flavor profiles. You can double or triple this recipe for big batches or just use two parts wine and one part juice for a solo drink.

How To Make Mimosas in a Pitcher

All you have to do is throw these ingredients into a pitcher, stir, and voila! You just created your very own at-home mimosa pitcher. 

For best results, add the Champagne right before serving and keep the pitcher in the fridge in between serving to keep it bubbly and chilled. The longer the pitcher is left out, the flatter it gets. 

If you are serving your mimosas, immediately add everything all at once. If you are waiting for guests to arrive, keep everything chilled and ready to go. Then, pop that cork when your friends show up. 

Looking for a fun spin on this basic recipe? Add a splash of an Ohza Cranberry or Mango Mimosa for a pop of color, subtle tart flavor, and a little extra boost of booze into your mimosa.  

Serving Your Mimosas

Now that you have created your easy pitcher of mimosa, it's time to serve it. By making your mimosas in a pitcher, you have saved yourself a good chunk of prep time. Even better, your guests can efficiently serve themselves. 

The most traditional way to serve mimosas is in Champagne flutes.  A Champagne flute is a long narrow glass with a long stem. The rounded base of the flute supports the stem. This is the traditional way to drink and toast Champagne, although there are other styles of Champagne glasses. 

Whether you serve your mimosa in a traditional Champagne flute or choose another fun glass, chill the glasses before serving. Nobody wants to drink flat, warm Champagne. To keep your guests happy, chill the glasses, pitchers, and mimosas themselves to keep everything fresh.  

Bottomless Brunch Made Easy

Whether you are serving five people or 25, making mimosas in a pitcher is the easiest and most efficient way to serve guests. It is time-efficient, easy to make in big batches, and allows party-goers to serve themselves. 

Making a big batch of mimosas is almost always a good idea. It’s a simple, delicious brunch-time staple that everyone of age can enjoy. 

Whether you get creative and branch out with different juices or keep it simple and classy with OJ and Champagne, storing and serving from a pitcher is the second most efficient option for your next celebration. What’s the most efficient way, you ask? Why, choosing Ohza Mimosas, of course!
